SQL Declaration

To specify the LATIN server character set for a character column, use the following syntax.

Data Type Maximum Value for n

Usage Notes

The semantics of the 8-bit LATIN server character set determine what characters are considered letters for the purpose of uppercasing, and how to translate between server character sets.

Database storage space for this type is allocated on a character basis.
